Appellate Judge Mac McEntire thinks ECW's Justin Credible should sue.
The power to stop time.
Justin (Chris Laird) is an ordinary teenage Native American who loves snowboarding. He gets picked on by bullies at school and spends most of his time working at the family store or hanging out with his goofball friend. One day, his uncle, who has raised him after his parents were killed, gives Justin an antique amulet that's been passed down through the generations. After tinkering with it, Justin discovers the amulet has magical powers, and is able to stop time.
Elsewhere, Angelique (Shareece Pfeiffer) learns her father has a secret or two. He has an antique stone plate, which can stop time. To Angelique's surprise, he's been using to pull off heists, making a fortune for himself. He's learned that there is a missing piece to the plate, in the form of an amulet. Once the two are combined, the owner will have vast supernatural power. This puts Justin and Angelique into each others' lives, first as a flirtation, and then as potential enemies. Plus, there's a whole bunch other characters with a bunch of other subplots.
I have no idea where this movie came from. I'm assuming it's an unsold TV pilot, but who knows? The creators are going for a Buffy the Vampire Slayer vibe, by mixing high school humor with fantasy adventure, but it's a tough balance to maintain.
When Justin Time is Justin Teresting:
When Justin Time is Justin Tolerable:
The picture quality is flat, with drab colors, and an overall low budget video look. The audio is adequate but not impressive. Some deleted scenes are it for extras. Overall, this one's a mild diversion, but there are plenty of other, better movies out there.
Justin Ocent? No, more like Justin Contemptofcourt.
